Already on the urban art itinerary, it captivates all those who see it. The mural “Fado Vadio” is a tribute to fado and one of the areas that most helped to develop it.
In a corner of Lisbon, in the neighbourhood of Mouraria, you’ll find the escadinhas de São Cristóvão, where an artist collective has created the impressive mural “Fado Vadio”. This inspired and original tribute to fado, Lisbon’s iconic music and classified as intangible cultural heritage, is one of the city’s must-see places. The symbols and figures from the history of fado have been portrayed over various walls. Fernando Maurício and Maria Severa, lyrics, bread and water on the table: these are just a few of the elements decorating this unique corner of Lisbon. Come and discover it and bring a camera: urban art is ephemeral by nature after all. Take the chance to immortalise it.
